    It would be better with music from a 1970s porno - chick-a-pow, chick-a-pow, chick-a-pow-wow....

    See, Ferrari can be cool doing teasers like that. Olympus cannot.

    It wouldn't load on my cruddy internet connection. Wish they had choices of quality or a better player, but from what I'm hearing here I'm probably not missing out on anything. ;)

    A wind-billowing piece of fabric that slowly comes off to reveal...1 square inch of the bottom corner of the back of a camera with the m4/3 logo.

    Yep, not missing much there.

    They must be really damn excited about whatever it is they've got - they are doing way too much promotional teasing - as much as the original e-p1 I'd say (which was pretty fantastic at the time I have to say).

    I'm more interested in the Pentax announcement coming at 11pm central standard time tonight. That said, Oly is equally on my radar, unless I can use my K mount glass (fully, with AF and auto aperture) on whatever Pentax is coming out with.

    I thought (though I could be wrong) that the upcoming Pentax announcement tomorrow is about their tiny 1/2.33" interchangeable lens system, but that their APS-C mirrorless system is more for later in the summer (August I think?).

    I have a feeling they are going to announce both - the release dates I think are what will be staggered. If they are really releasing an m4/3 competitor, it makes sense to get ahead of Olympus (even if they've missed the boat on the panasonic announcements).

    If you check out The Online Photographer blog, they have a post about tonight's announcement, here:

    cool-new-camera

    In general, I don't think Mike (the blog owner) would get too excited over the small sensor camera that is supposedly coming. I could be wrong on that one, but I think they are both going to be announced. Then again, he only refers to a single system, so maybe it is just the small one.

    bottom line, I am excited for any cool new camera coming out, haha. I am anxious to see which brand will part me from my camera buying money!

    I'd love to see a Pentax mirrorless with APS-C. I didn't care for the NEX really. Pentax's background is a photography company (not a consumer electronics company), so I'm hoping they'll get it right.

    I think I might be able to wait a day and see :)

    Oh to clarify, he didn't indicate it was Pentax, however the time he will be posting the information matches with Pentax's slated announcement time (11 pm Central Standard Time on 6/22, or 1PM Japan time on 6/23). That time has been listed on the photo rumors site for a couple of weeks.

    I think the fabric was too thick. I would have preferred something a little silkier, would have been more provocative and titillating...

    They should have slowed the video down. Due to the small size of the product, the fabric flapping looks like it was the target of a blow-dryer gone bad...

    Don't fail me E-P3!

    Yeah, it was something akin to a giant lens cloth!

    If they slowed it down, it would have been a full minute of agonizing wait for nothing...you can't tease that long!

    Olympus marketing folks must think they're Apple. While other companies are coming out with new products, the best Olympus can do is a teaser?! How'bout information about the real deal.

    John,

    Not sure if a mini or one of the new Olys will be in my near future after all...just scored a sweet deal on an e-p2, 17mm and VF-2 on ebay!

    What with 1970's Porno music and Steve's ocelot this is descending into NSFW!
